Local senators seek leadership changes 

Six Democratic state senators on Wednesday invited other senators, including the 12 Republicans, to join them to form a majority that could seize control of the chamber from an all-Democratic coalition Sen. Lowell Barron has led since 1999.

Sen. E.B. McClain, of Midfield, said at a press conference at the State House wednesday that The six pledge to the citizens of Alabama to organize the Senate in a cooperative and bipartisan manner.  Sen. Larry Means, D-Attalla, said a Senate run over the next four years by the six Democrats plus whoever joins them could give Republican Gov. Bob Riley's agenda a more favorable hearing than it's had the past four years. The six Democratic senators are McClain, Means, Tom Butler of Madison, Jimmy Holley of Elba, Phil Poole of Moundville and Jim Preuitt of Talladega.  If those six joined with the 12 Republican senators elected Tuesday, they would form a coalition of 18 senators, a majority of the 35-member Senate that in January could write the Senate's operating rules and appoint its leaders for the next four years.  Sen. Jabo Waggoner, R-Vestavia Hillssaid he saw no reason the 12 Republican senators wouldn't accept the offer to form a governing coalition with the six. McClain said he hoped more Democratic senators would join them to form a ruling coalition.

Democrats clearly are in the Senate majority. Voters on Tuesday apparently elected 23 Democrats and 12 Republicans to the state Senate, though one close race still had not been called late Wednesday. That compares to the 25 Democrats and 10 Republicans who were there the past four years.

But most of the Democratic senators, including seven of eight black senators, could hold much less powerful positions if the six Democrats who spoke Wednesday join with the Republicans.


Goodyear talks to resume 

Talks will resume next week between Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the United Steelworkers. Negotiators for Goodyear  Thursday afternoon were on their way back to Cincinnati in hopes of restarting contract talks with the United Steelworkers.  Union officials said they will be traveling Monday, with talks perhaps beginning as early as Tuesday.  Wednesday, Goodyear  sent its employees a summary of the company's Oct. 27 contract offer and said the company is willing to begin talks again "with no preconditions."  The letter said that as a show of good faith, company negotiators were returning to Cincinnati "with the hope that your union's bargainers will do likewise and resume bargaining.  The union went on strike Oct. 5 after contract talks broke down.  Dennis Battles, president of Local 12 of the USW, said talks likely will begin Tuesday.  Local 12 represents about 1,250 striking workers at the Gadsden plant. Battles said he wants to look closely at the company's latest offer to get details.
The contract offer as detailed by Goodyear says the Gadsden plant, along with 10 other U.S. plants, would be protected and a minimum of $447 million would be spent on capital improvements in those plants in the next three years.  Goodyear has announced plans to close its Tyler, Texas, plant.   Goodyear said in its letter to employees that the company would contribute $660 million to start the trust fund to finance retiree health care, and $1 of future cost-of-living adjustments would be diverted to the trust. It said profit sharing may be directed to the fund by the USW. The union said if a trust is established to provide retiree health care, it should be funded properly.  Goodyear said in the letter that while the union had rejected its latest offer, officials hoped the membership would be allowed to vote on the offer.
Goodyear announced a $48 million third-quarter loss Thursday.
